"Unstoppable"
by Disciple
Lyrics:

Now it's time to rise, time to fight
Time to run like you've never run in your life
It's the moment of your life, the reason why
All the blood, the sweat and the tears have fallen down

You can't be stopped
You will survive
You can't give up
So what you gonna do about it?
You're unstoppable
You're unstoppable

You feel it in your lungs, here it comes
Second wind like a slingshot catapult over the edge
I'm on top, ahead, below, behind
The fortress inside
There's nothing in this world to take you down

You can't be stopped
You will survive
You can't give up
So what you gonna do about it
You're unstoppable
You're unstoppable

One by one they will fall
One by one they will fall
And there's nothing they can do about it!

You're unstoppable
"Lonely Soul"
by I Anthem
Lyrics:

Feels like we're running low
On all the things we thought we could control
But I feel better off this way
Somewhere I lost the hope
In all the promises that I've been told
Sad how we learn to let go

So don't hesitate I'm going under
Don't place the blame on those who slumber
I, I've got a lot to learn

Oh I'm a lonely soul
Give me room to grow when I come clean
Oh I'm a lonely soul
Tell me does it show now I've come clean

Feels like I found escape
Admitting to the truth that I'm afraid
Now I feel better off this way

Now that I've learned how to admit
To all the darkness that I pit
Let truth shine light into my soul
Bring out the life buried beneath
Breathe life into the air I breathe
I know there's a song with in my lungs
I know you're singing over me
"Defender"
by Kings Kaleidoscope
Lyrics:

A torrent of destruction hid my darkended soul from rescuing
I cried to God for help, He heard my voice
The Tainted earth, it rocked and reeled
the heavens bowed the mountains kneeled
The Thunderous voice of God my covering

I will not be afraid
for my hope is in His name
Who is a rock but our God?
Whose blood has sealed our freedom?
Jesus, our savior, defender, redeemer!

He brought me to a safer place, equipped my hands and feet with strength
So I advance with confidence in Christ
His precious truth delivers me from lies that wage a war in me
Your victory is mine for all my days

I will not be afraid
for my hope is in His name

You kneel down to raise me up
- you my Lord, you my God -
You rescue me with reckless love
Oh my Lord, oh my God
"Up From The Ashes"
by The Letter Black
Lyrics:

It's time to look me in the eyes
It's time to read between the lines
Thought you would leave me here for dead
But I'm not done yet

I've got nothing left to lose
I've got everything to prove
After all you put me through

Hey yeah, I'm ready, I'm ready to fight
Hey yeah, I'm ready, I'm ready to fight

I won't give in, I'm not that easy
I'll live again and keep on breathing
I'll bleed my last regret
'Cause sometimes you gotta burn the past yeah
and rise up, rise up from the ashes

It's time time to cut through all this dirt
It's time to bury all that hurt
God help me leave this all behind
I've gotta survive
"Commodity"
by Remedy Drive
Lyrics:

Don't need a bandaid for my bullet hole
Don't need a brand name pharmaceutical
Lend me a hand - stay with me in the cold show me the plan - the way back to the beautiful

Don't need an AK or an A-bomb
I need you with me here now - need you to stay long
All I got's a melody - all I've got is a song
I can make it if you keep telling me to stay strong

I'm a soul inside a body
I'm not a commodity no oh
Untie me I've gotta be let go

Don't let 'em own me - don't let 'em use me
Put a pen in my hands and not an uzi
I'm dreaming of the sweet sound of liberty
A railroad underground to deliver me
Give me six strings not a six gun
Can anybody fix me - no physicians
Carry me on six wings to the sixth rung
On the sides of the north in the city of the bright ones

Take my hand
Lead me out of the night
Take my hand
Lead me into the light
"Easy Way Out"
by Southbound Fearing
Lyrics:

Call me what you will but don't call me a charlatan
I never claimed to be anything more than what I am
We're just the ones who won't back down, the ones who won't run away
From the proving ground. There ain't no easy way out

You want the world but you don't want the pain, no
There ain't no easy way out. There ain't no easy way out
You want it all but you don't want to lead the way
There ain't no easy way out. There ain't nothing here like that

There ain't no bailout. I ain't holding out my hand
That's okay cuz' I know the One who's helping us make a stand
So turn it up loud and I'll scream at the top of my lungs
Just want to make these people feel alive again

You want the world but you don't want the pain, no
There ain't no easy way out. There ain't no easy way out
You want it all but you don't want to lead the way
There ain't no easy way out. There ain't nothing here like that
There ain't nothing here like that

I put myself on the front lines cuz' there is no place more satisfying
From here till the end of my time I won't live my life hiding

You want the world but you don't want the pain, no
There ain't no easy way out. There ain't no easy way out
You want it all but you don't want to lead the way
There ain't no easy way out. There ain't nothing here like that
There ain't nothing here like that

"Denial"
by A Life Set Apart
Lyrics:

Here I am again in this misery
Falling for everything that you've sold me
I've been losing hope in my sanity
Falling for all your tricks that control me
And I'm still trying
To fight the fire of the hate inside me
And I'm still buying
All the old lies you left inside me

So take your shots but I won't bow down now

I'm in the fight of my life
I'm not fine
I'm in denial

Now I'm holding onto what's left of me
What you know is enough to destroy me
I can't take a stand with you next to me
What you want it can only hurt me
And I'm still finding
That I'm the one lost trapped in the lining
And I'm still hiding
Here in the darkness where you left me dying

So take your shots but I won't bow down now

I'm in the fight of my life
I'm not fine
I'm in denial

Back end of life
I'm full of strife
In a drone on my own
I intend to mend
As I contend within this sin I'm in
I'm in control of my soul and it's filled with lust
If I could just break free
My mind holds my tongue
Not allowed to talk aloud
I'm proud and I shut my brain down on command
It's time for myself to admit to my wrongs
I'm living as a man
But I've given my sin
I'm done looking and lustin
I've gotta find a peer
To challenge me
To flee and be free
With everything that I now have left in me

I'm in the fight of my life
I'm not fine
I'm in denial
"Glory"
by Close Your Eyes
Lyrics:

My right to live my life in liberty
I feel has slowly been restricted completely
It ain't the right of just a chosen few
this ignorance has been repeatedly misleading you

Rise up! Rise up! Rise up like a sleeping giant!
You've awakened a sleeping giant

I won't give in to shock and awe
You miss the reason and the purpose we're fighting for
This subdivision is increasing now
My heart is strong and it keeps beating and beating you down

Breed misdirection, birthing deceit
You're on the wrong side of my history
I know my legacy
my father, my name and I will crush fake reality
Cowardly kingdom, abusive fools. We'll expose your fake legality
We'll drag you kicking screaming from the land and raise an anthem to the heavenlies

Rise up! Rise up! Rise up to the sound of the revolution!
Rise up! Rise up! Rise up to the sound of the revolution!
Wake up, you sleeping giant
You've awakened a sleeping giant

I am finally awake. I know my legacy
My father, my name. I'll crush fake reality
I am your kingdom. I am your name. I am an anthem to the heavenlies
You can't take my liberty, or all the things I hold dear, what's important to me
You've awakened a sleeping giant. You've awakened a sleeping giant
"Proof Of Life"
by Scott Stapp
Lyrics:

Do you suffer in silence?
Do you live your life in your dreams?
Do you walk in defiance?
To escape from reality
Are you caught in the headlights standing still?
Don't you wish you could run away?
Have you lost your desire waiting for
Someone to save you?
But no one came

What's your proof of life?
You can't deny the truth that hits you right between the eyes.
So just name your price.
I'll give anything to justify the reason I'm alive
What's your proof of life?
What's your proof of life?

Are you playing the victim
When you know that you volunteered?
No excuse for your sickness
It's your choices that got you here
Are you caught in the headlights standing still?
Don't you wish you could run away?
Have you lost your desire waiting for
Someone to save you?
But no one came

What's your proof of life?
You can't deny the truth that hits you right between the eyes
So just name your price
I'll give anything to justify the reason I'm alive
What's your proof of life?
What's your proof of life?

Someone to save you?
But no one came

What's your proof of life?
You can't deny the truth that hits you right between the eyes
So just name your price
I'll give anything to justify the reason I'm alive
What's your proof of life?
What's your proof of life?

You're the proof of life
"Take The Bullets Away" (feat. Lacey Sturm)
by We As Human
Lyrics:

I've got my finger on the trigger
One bullet in the gun
And I'm spinning the revolver
Thinking this could be the one

I tried to find religion
To see what I'd become
I was ruined by the world
But I blamed it on the Son

Am I worthless?
Am I filthy?
Am I too far gone for a remedy?
Will you help me?
Cause I'm dying
To be something more than a memory
If I reach out
Can I trust you?
Will you help me see the light of one more day?
Take the bullets away
Take the bullets away

I've tried to build resistance
I've tried to start a war
But no one ever listened
I've battled with the storm

Am I worthless?
Am I filthy?
Am I too far gone for a remedy?
Will you help me?
Cause I'm dying
To be something more than a memory
If I reach out
Can I trust you?
Will you help me see the light of one more day?
Take the bullets away
Take the bullets away

You're so disarming
There's nothing left to fear
You're so disarming
I'd drop all my weapons to show you that I'm not afraid
Take the bullets away
Take the bullets away

"Tell Me Your Story"
by The Exchange
Lyrics:

Turn, come close to me
I know you're tired and afraid
I know your hurt won't go away
So run into my arms
And I can hear your silent cries echoing out into the night

Tell me the story about those scars
Where you have been and who you are
Feeling like we are worlds apart
But I will listen

Like a ship that can't find land
I'll be your current, here's my hand
Giving you strength in which to stand
I will listen

No one has looked to see
All the pain you hold inside
All the fears you tried to hide

Just open your heart to me
And can you hear my whisperings
Flowing out across the sea?

Put faith in me
Put your faith in me
'Cause I will take you away from the pain
I wanna take you away from all the pain
"Carry On"
by Kingdom
Lyrics:

There's life when the hour is darkest
Hope, when everthing is lost
there's freedom
By the blood of the Lamb
His kingdom will never come to an end
There's peace that can calm the storm
There's strength like a lions roar

We may falter we may even fall
Our Lord is higher, He has conquered all

Rejoice all you children
Shout the song of heaven
His kingdom come His will be done
On Earth and in us

There's love in the name of Jesus
Life, in the One who frees us
There's freedom by the blood of the Lamb
His kingdom will never come to an end
There's joy when your filled with sorrow
Awake, for the path is narrow
There's freedom by the blood of the Lamb
His kingdom will never come to an end

Rejoice all you children
Shout the song of heaven
His kingdom come His will be done
On Earth and in us

Declare the King is risen
Safe, we've been forgiven
Our God is always with us
In faith, carry on
"Take The Hill"
by Project 86
Lyrics:

I ran to share what I'd learned
Consumed with elation
But to my amazement
The elders wouldn't listen
They said, "Shut your imagination
There is nothing beyond the visible
Devote yourself the legions
And pledge assimilation"

You left me here for dead
But I'll see you again
You thought that I'd relent
But I've been through you and back again

The cover up attempts
Your cold misdirection
Your wave of propaganda
Has now been uncovered
Unmasking your deception
Has fueled dissemination
The endless motivation
Snowballing like infection

Still driven to dispel myths
Still escaping the sinking ship
Still dropping flaming arrows to the middle of the village
Still dodging their attempts
Still fighting indifference
Still amassing countless numbers as we march to take the hill

As we march to take the hill
"Cards"
by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Lyrics:

When I feel beaten down and I get burned out
I flip another card and things finally start to look up
Some hearts need to fail, some ships were built to sail without you
Whoa

Don't look back although you might be sorry
The test is out to finish your story
Do your best to give pride with sense of reason
And realize that change comes with the season
Don't look back!

It's not about the race, It's more about the pace
Sometimes you walk away, but sometimes you have to stand up
For what you believe, and I can guarantee, you'll finally feel free

So when you feel like giving up, no one cares about your love
Remember up above, someone's telling you try to see
Without only using your eyes this time
"We Are The Broken"
by Seventh Day Slumber
Lyrics:

They keep you hanging on
Always hiding the truth
Afraid of what you'll find inside you
All the pain they put you through, To deny the shame and wrong they do
There is a light inside the darkness
Can't defeat or destroy and it's time they find out who we are

We are the broken
All that remains of our past are the scars
Our eyes are open
We're not afraid to admit who we are, We are the broken

It's their instinct to deny all the lies and abuse
The pain you tried to hide is bleeding through
Their perfect ways and your mistakes, all the plastic smiles from a thousand fakes
You're more than what they said that you could be, so believe

Our eyes are open, our eyes are open
Our eyes are open, our eyes are open
It's time to find out who we are

We are the broken
All that remains of our past are the scars
Our eyes are open
We're not afraid to admit who we are
We are the broken
Now we can see we were loved from the start
We are the chosen
We are the beautiful light in the dark

"Renegade"
by 7eventh Time Down
Lyrics:

I'm sideways on the highway
It's looking like a good day for a fight
Let's drive

I've got my gas pedal kicking back
At me like a .45
I'm gonna make it out alive

Hell can't keep it hands on me
I've gotta make my get away

I keep seeing you in my rear view
I'll never hit the brakes no matter what it takes
I won't ever relive what I've been through
No matter what it takes
I'm running like a renegade

The fast lanes not a scary thing
When you're running from that everything you used to be
Cuz you know you'll never go
Back to your life lived in misery

Life won't ever be the same
After the getaway

I keep seeing you in my rear view
I'll never hit the brakes
No matter what it takes
I won't ever relive what I've been through
No matter what it takes
No matter what they say
Gears are grinding
You're behind me
I'll never hit the brakes
No matter what it takes
White smokes rolling
Driving like I stole it
No matter what it takes
I'm running like a renegade
"Satan's Foot On My Neck"
by Brett Detar
Lyrics:

In a world of deceivers can't find no believers
Could it be that there's none of them left?
Got dumped in a river when I was delivered
The doctor he cursed me under his breath Sayin, "Boy just be thankful you're breathin'
Don't be wishin' for no one to care
Boy you won't ever get even
There ain't no place for that around here"
There ain't no place for that around here

Why's the devil always got his foot on my neck?

In a world full of others can't find me a brother
Could it be I'm a bastard or worse?
Was left here to suffer by my starvin' mother
My father he hung on the day of my birth
Tell me, "Boy just be thankful you're breathin'
Don't be wishin' for no one to love
Boy, don't be thinkin' of thievin'
You'll pay for your sins below or above"
You'll pay for your sins below or above

In a life full of trouble that's never been subtle
You could say I'm the prince of all pain
'cuz if heartache's a kingdom i'd have wealth and dominion
And all of my debts, they would surely be paid
Boy just be thankful you're breathin'
Don't be wishin' for no one to care
No, there's no way to get even
There ain't no place for that around here

Why's the devil always got his foot on my neck?

Thought I could bargain with the father of lies
I tried to make my peace on the edge of a knife
So why am I so surprised to be playing with fire?
Got hell to pay the fiddler when the deal expires
Get your foot off my neck
Get your foot of my neck
Get your foot up off my neck
"Fists On Fire"
by Hour6
Lyrics:

There's a cold steel door that slams right into your face
And it blocks your chances to finish the race
There's a war inside you, you're losing track
You feel a cold wind blow, you're under attack
Those swirling lies are all around you, beside you
Just avenues for gaining ground, driving you down
They're front lines, you know that now
It's time to make a choice, so come on, join with us
We're going

Higher, We're going higher
We're rising higher than before
We're going higher, with fists on fire
Yeah nothin' is gonna stop us anymore
And there's a war at our door
And We're ready for more

I can't find it in me to find out the truth
And I can't bear to dig any deeper
No I can't come to see those roots
The evidence that I'm in need of You

We're losing ground but gaining speed
We're tryin' to find out what we need
We're looking for you, We're tryin' to see
The truth is what will set us free
When all it takes is for one to fall
To set the chain that starts so small
Let's stand up tall with fists on fire come one come all
"Slave"
by Love Like Gravity
Lyrics:

You're a heavy burden
You like to watch me sweat
You like the way it feels when you got your boot on the back of my neck
You're a two bit tyrant
You're the twisted sort
And you won't go away til I'm flat on face crawling back for more

I'm off the leash so ya can't control me

No, I'm never gonna be a slave
Uncaged now and you don't own me
No, I'm never gonna be a slave
You take pride in ruin
You love to divide
You wanna chain my soul and make your bed in the back of my mind
You're the iron shackles
Made to break my bones
But I wont be contained, no I'm never gonna back...never gonna fall

I'm off the leash so ya can't control me

No I'm never gonna be a slave
Uncaged now...you'll never own me
No I'm never gonna be a slave

From the dust and from the grave
The hands that were pierced to break the chains
I dont ever have to be a slave
"Glass House"
by Red
Lyrics:

We deceive the world with lies we hide
Behind the smiles
We can see the home of desperate hearts
The truth has fallen down
The illusion we've become
A fear we can't outrun
We're closing in our emptiness
We're broken

You alone, You can see right through
This glass house we call home
You alone, You can take away the pain
Yeah, You have shown, You can break right through this glass house of our souls
Make us whole again, Make us whole

We fight to cover up the scars
From our charade
There's a war between who we are
And who we make believe
It's over now, We're fallen' but...

You alone, You can see right through
This glass house we call home
You alone, You can take away the pain
Yeah, You have shown, You can break right through this glass house of our souls
Make us whole again, Make us whole

I, I'm running to escape the walls
That have trapped this heart in
The door is open, please come save me
I, I never want to hide behind
The disguise that I've become
That I've become

Cause You alone, You can take away the pain
Yeah, You have shown, You can find a way to change
Yeah, You alone, You can see right through
This glass house of our souls
Make us whole again
Make us whole again

Make us whole again
"Criminal"
by Scientist
Lyrics:

Watching the dead trees bloom life in the air
Making a scene of color everywhere
A rising flower breaks from the ground
All else fallow is certain to drown

But still we remain

If love is beautiful
Why are we all so criminal?
Love is volatile
Why are we all so criminal?

Burning dry ground shining its rays
The sun gives life and takes it away
Searching knowledge to understand
Changing seasons are changing the land

"Speak"
by Everything In Slow Motion
Lyrics:

There is something deep inside
A seed of faith that keeps me questioning
If I could see like you do, where would I be? Who would I be?
Sometimes it isn't enough
But if I linger here for a while, you will only hear me speak
If I could hear you

Speak into our hearts, a song to shake the earth
Love will light the way that leads us home

There is something buried underneath this concrete floor
From a seed, fragile sprouts are pushing upwards
If I could see like you do, but I can't so I won't pretend
But I feel it
One day those sprouts are going to break through the surface

There's a question that connects us all
Is there more than life and death?
And even though we all take different roads, it burns within our chests
I don't need the signs and wonders, no scientific proof
Speak to me. Speak into my heart, a song to shake the earth

Will I live forever? Or will I disappear?
My mind is searching for answers
My heart saying it's never been so clear

Speak into our hearts, a song to shake my perfect world
Love will light the way to leads us home
"Everything's Gonna Be Alright"
by Mike Mains & The Branches
Lyrics:

Everything
Everything's gonna be alright
Be alright
Everything
Everything's gonna be alright
Be alright

Hush now, baby
Don't you cry
Imma sing you to sleep tonight
I know it's strange and hard to grasp
The fact that we can't understand
The meaning of this life
Sometimes it's hard to find
But if we learn to look between the lines
I think that if we open our eyes
We're gonna see the sunrise
Oh!

Hush now, baby
Don't you cry
Imma sing you to sleep tonight
I know it's strange and hard to grasp
The fact that we can't understand
The meaning of this life
Sometimes it's hard to find
But if we learn to look between the lines
I think that if we open our eyes
We're gonna see the sunrise

Jump off the train you've been riding on
Wash the regret from your hands
You gotta fill your mind with new horizons
Or your dreams will pack their bags
Break this spell
Get out of bed
When you get up in the morning
Put a spring in your step
Shake the dust off of your feet
Step out into the street

Everything
Everything's gonna be alright
Be alright
"In The Dark"
by Nine Lashes
Lyrics:

I don't wanna walk around the maze
(The clouds hang above)
I can't find the way out
I don't wanna wander here for days
(They darken the sun)
I can't find the way out

The shadows surround me
I've never been here before

I need You to save me
Feels like I'm falling apart
Pain led the way here
Left me for dead in the dark

I can feel the ground begin to cave
(The rain start to fall)
Could You show the way out?
I know I'm gonna fall as it decays
(I'll drown in the flood)
Could You make the way out?

The shadows surround me
I've never been here before

I need You to save me
Feels like I'm falling apart
Pain led the way here
Left me for dead in the dark
Without You I'm faded
Fear found its way to the heart
I need You to save me
Don't let me die in the dark
In the dark

Save me
Save me

I need You to save me
Feels like I'm falling apart
Pain led the way here
Left me for dead in the dark
Without You I'm faded
Fear found its way to the heart
I need You to save me
Don't let me die in the dark
In the dark
"Fragile Wings"
by The Overseer
Lyrics:

Be still, my weary soul
I can feel you're gone
With every step I take
I lay you down
It's so hard to stand
To see you at the end
Buried deep inside the ground

Fragile wings were broken
Glory think of me
Nightmares have awoken
Can you hear the screams

A bearer
Left astray
A drifter thrown in disarray
Here I lay
One more little traveller
Gone like gusts of wind
Just another vapor
At end

Fragile wings were broken
Glory think of me
Nightmares have awoken
Can you hear the screams

Ghosts of, who she used to be
I can, feel her haunting me
Feel it dancing inside
Feel it take it's place

I'm lost until you find me
The pain uprising
Glory mend these broken wings

Be still my weary soul
It's time to let go

Rid me from this torture
Awake me from this dream
Or rid me of my own breath
If you can't mend these wings
Glory, glory think of me

"This Isn't Love"
by The Birdsongs
Lyrics:

You're getting ready for a night on the town
And I'd give everything I own if you just stay home

I see the red flags
I hear the sirens scream
You're deaf to hear 'cause you're so in love

So how long would you hate me if I told you the truth
I don't wanna see you hurt anymore
'Cause I know him better and he's just using you
He'll leave your innocence on the floor
I don't wanna see you hurt anymore

You think he loves you 'cause he gave you his heart
But he is asking for so much So much in return

Can't you see the red flags
Don't you hear the sirens scream
Open up your eyes
This isn't love

'Cause love is patient and kind
It never crosses that line
And I'm telling you this isn't love
'Cause love is patient and kind
And it will never cross that line
And I'm telling you this isn't love
"I Will Overcome"
by Devin Williams
Lyrics:

I need a moment to catch my breath
From the pain and the bitterness
When I thought you had enough
You're relentless

The storm is on its way again
Wipe the blood off of my lips
You'd love to take me down
Break my neck and watch me drown

I will overcome
The darkness inside
Shining like the sun
The truth is burning bright

Clouds are gathering above
Clinch my fists I'm not giving up
You'd love to make me fall
Break my heart and watch me crawl

I will overcome
The darkness inside
Shining like the sun
The truth is burning bright
Overrated
I'm not giving in to you
I'm breaking through
I will overcome

Standing tall above your lies
He holds the keys in His hands
Conquered death to give us life
Now there's nothing in this world that can keep me down
"Failures And Fakes"
by The Ongoing Concept
Lyrics:

Failures and fakes, and those who don't get their way
All seem to have excuses for how they think
Justified, dignified, they all pledge their innocence
And I would know because, because I'm one of them

It's through expression that we mark our understanding
Are we who we are if it's who we appear to be?
Oh, let me tell you friends, I've found out the hard way
Imitations don't produce originality

Don't think I've escaped
I'm just as guilty
We're all failures and fakes, and if you won't believe it
Well I've seen your future. It's not that impressive

Excuses, excuses, we got them all. They're weighing us down
We all got faults, we all got faults, but no one seems to be blaming themselves
Oh, friends, I've found out the hard way
Hypocrisy runs free when you talk as if you're blameless

But if you're not willing to be reasonable, then I'll be leaving
'Cause there's no use in trying to change the proud or heal the ungrateful
Oh heal, oh heal the ungrateful
But you know better than I do
That your walls are falling down and there's no way for you to stop it
This is no one's fault but your own
(Hey, hey, hey, hey) So stop running
(Hey, hey, hey, hey) from your problems
'Cause they won't fix themselves
Oh we're broken, oh so broken
It takes a man to acknowledge his weakness
Oh we're broken, oh so broken
It takes a man acknowledge his weakness
And there may only be a speck in your eye
But denial's gonna keep it there, keep it there
And I know there's a plank in my eye, but I'm willing, oh willing to admit it
You got no trouble finding sin in my eyes, but all that changes when it seems like it's your neck on the line
"Ones And Zeroes"
by Stellar Kart
Lyrics:

Ashes to ashes, we all fall down
Dust to dust, scattered on the ground
Living in the shadows
Where fear can't fight
A hope of redemption
None left behind
A voice for those who can't say a word
To the ears of those who never have heard
It's the sound that echoes through the night

We are the ones
We are the ones and zeros
The beautiful incomplete
We are the ones
We are the future heroes
A colorful symphony
We are the ones

The dawn or the twilight
It's all the same
Clear eyes at midnight
We're all to blame
Chosen for freedom with undue worth
Standing for something that can't be earned
A voice for those who can't say a word
To the ears of those who never have heard
It's the sound that echoes through the night

"Memory"
by Decyfer Down
Lyrics:

I remember part of me
Hidden under lock and key
Always had the best of intentions

And even though I try to hide
I recall no peace of mind
A life that was so pretentious

I need to know where I've come from
Look at the man that I've become

Take me from this madness
Take me from this pain
Take me from this sadness
But don't take my memory

I remember feeling whole
Now I'm just a dying soul
I know truth is kind of blinding

But since You know me so well
And You know how I feel
Won't You please come and remind me

I need to know what I've become
I need to know where I've come from

Take me from this madness
Take me from this pain
Take me from this sadness
Take me from this shame
But don't take my memory

I'm remembering everything locked up so tight
I digress to progress my life with You
I'm alright
"Fleshkiller"
by Phinehas
Lyrics:

Ignite my veins with your blood to inspire new verses
I'm drained to my dregs
Replace my eyes with your fire to burn through the curses
Leave nothing that could hinder your blinding light

Test me in the furnace of affliction
Refine me as you wish
When the die is cast
Breathe in me your animating spark

I won't flinch when the earth gives way
So take me now
It's not my blood to bleed
i won't flinch when the earth gives way
So I cry out
The last word is yours to speak

Sharpen my tongue with precision only your words convey
I've kept waiting too long
Breathe in my lungs a passion that strangles corruption
Till there's nothing left

Fleshkiller
We're engraved on your hand

Flesh killer
Disease has no grasp on your reign
Fleshkiller
Prison cells won't contain your light
With every crushing blow
We are engraved upon your hand
"Yet There Is Life"
by This City Awaits
Lyrics:

I watch you suffocate
Right here in my arms
No one knew about this
Too late to stop
I tried anyway, Maybe in vain
You wouldn't leave me like this
How could I do the same?

And then you left oh so suddenly
You're nothing more than a memory
And now you're doing the same to me

You drag me down here
You lock me down with fear
And yet there is still life
In a place with no light

Over and over I ask the same thing
But no one can give me an answer
And that's why the anger sets in
I should know why you're not breathing
The thought of you will be the end of me
God, I've got to let go
I've held this all inside
It's for the last time
"We Are The Brave"
by Veridia
Lyrics:

We Are The Brave

There is an enemy dressed as a friend
The picture of deceit who knows the end
We're standing here unafraid in the lion's den

'Cause the power strong enough to save
Is running through our veins

We are the brave
We'll never break
Whatever it takes
We're gonna make it together
We're chasing out fear
You're love, welcome here
Now and forever
Love is always gonna win the fight
Because the blood runs deep inside
We are the brave

A storm is on its way
I can hear the sound
We will bend like trees that sway
But we won't fall down, down

The power strong enough to save
Is running through our veins

The power to save
Lives in our veins
We are the brave

Love is gonna win the fight
Fear is gonna run and hide
We're not afraid, we're not afraid
Love is gonna win the fight
Fear is gonna run and hide
We're not afraid

"Start Over"
by Flame
Lyrics:

Everybody's got a blank page
A story they're writing today
A wall that they're climbing
You can't carry the past on your shoulders
But you can start over
Regrets, no matter what you goin' through
Jesus, He gave it all to save you
He carried the cross on His shoulders
So you can start over

Don't let your heart be troubled
Don't be afraid
To the broken hearted that wished that they'd
Never been born, never been torn, never sinned, never disobeyed
I know you think there's no hope, but that ain't true
I know you feelin' regret
(Like I) brought this all on myself
(Like I) messed it up big time, and this time I don't deserve God's help
(Thinking) how can God forgive me after knowin' what I did (can He?)
After knowin' that I hid from Him, and I stayed away and backslid
Jesus came for the sick (so true)
Jesus came for the weak (amen)
Jesus came to give good news and have set the captives free (amen)
Jesus came for the poor (amen)
Jesus came with the keys
Jesus came to remove the chains so the prisoners are released

Everybody's got a blank page
A story they're writing today
A wall that they're climbing
You can't carry the past on your shoulders
But you can start over
Regrets, no matter what you goin' through
Jesus, He gave it all to save you
He carried the cross on His shoulders
So you can start over

See, His love is deeper than the ocean floor
Run to His arms like an open door
God the Father sent the Son
So men can come and be free and ain't gotta run no more
Come to me, all who are weary; with heavy burdens, I'll give you rest
Separated you from the sin, as far as the east is from the west
Thrown in the sea of forgetfulness
What sin? What offense?
And when them waves come crashing in, I'll calm the winds in your defense
So, whatever it is that you've done
He put that punishment on His Son
You'll never come under His condemnation... Satan and his accusations
So, dry your eyes, lift up your head
Hallelujah! God is not dead!
Plus He gave us His peace, and He took our guilt on the cross instead
Took our place and now we embrace
A clean slate with the eyes of faith
We know unfailing love, unfailing love, it's not too late, start over
"Fight The Silence"
by For Today
Lyrics:

Eye to eye, face to face
Still we don't see them; we look away
Still we cry; but no one is listening
When will we open our eyes
Open our eyes

This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we hear their cries (when will we hear their cries)
This song we sing to silence the suffering
When will we open our eyes (when will we open our eyes)

So let the world listen closely
As i scream to see the freedom they deserve
Let the world listen closely
I say, "its time to cross the lines our culture blurred"
Bringing on poverty...
They keep us uninformed and distracted
If they can't fight for themselves, we'll fight for them
It's time...to fight the silence

Go
Broken, abused, and exploited
For the sick satisfaction of selfish men
Only a coward would try to ignore it
But we can raise our voice and bring it to an end

Fight, fight, fight the silence
Set the captives free
Fight, fight, fight the silence
They're a slave to a system of apathy
Bought and sold...
They're right to life has been taken away
Bought and sold...
Bring an end to slavery
Open our eyes

When will we open our eyes
Their fate is in our hands
Will they be left there to suffer
Will somebody take a stand
Against a system... that's been designed to deny
Its victims... their right to life
Let's set the captives free
When all is said and done, we'll see justice come
It's time to fight the silence

Go
The voice of the voiceless
Fight the silence
We are the hope for the hopeless
Fight the silence
Fight, fight, fight the silence
It's time to...
Fight
"Pain Killer"
by The Letter Black
Lyrics:

I'm killing pain
In the name of love
I'm fearless of what you can do to me
I'm hiding all my tears
Even though I wear them on my sleeve
I can't erase what you have
Done to me

Wanted you to love me
Always seemed to hurt so deep inside
I can't erase what you have
Done to me

Killing pain
Killing pain

You kill my pain
In the name of love
I'm killing pain
In the name of love
I'm fearless of what you can do to me
In the name of love
I'm killing pain
In the name of love

There's no hurting now
From the scars I have
So deep in the past
And I let it go

In the name of love
I'm killing pain
In the name of love

I can see just who I am
Always seems to find me where I am
I can't erase what you have
Done to me

There's no hurting now
From the scars I have
So deep in the past
And I let it go
"Hand Grenade"
by Random Hero
Lyrics:

Silence is golden
Look at what I'm holdin'
Life in my hands can they understand
Mr. Diabolical it's looking for another soul
To take take take it all

Label me crazy
Label me a liar
What's in my hands will set your world on fire
I won't be silent
And I won't back down
'Cause there's no one stoppin' me now

This is the state of emergency
Sound the alarm cause the pressure keeps building
You can run but you can't get away
Cause I'm gonna explode just like a hand grenade

This is world is schemin'
Lookin' for a reason
To kill the light that's inside of my hands
I will never let it go to Mr. Diabolical
To take take take it all
"Down"
by Thousand Foot Krutch
Lyrics:

If you wanna rise up start with me
If you wanna stand up, here's one for free
(Feel the movement, feel the pressure)

Fresher, like it's the 1st semester
Rock it like Queen when I'm under pressure
While the rest of these cats, all siesta
Get loose like change when it's on your dresser
BOOM
Here comes the real volume
Had enough to wake up and shake this tomb
I can act like skate decks in concrete rooms
We're about to face what makes this move

People used to tell me that I'm on my own
They said I'd never make a difference on this microphone
'Cause there's a million other people who can sing this song
I said " Well, thanks for the push" 'cause you all were wrong

Let's Go

You wanna try to take me under
I'll never bow 'til I'm six feet under
Listen to the sound of rolling thunder
You can't break me
You'll never take me down

(Feel the movement, feel the pressure)

Explosion, take it like rust corrosion
When it goes a-GOOSH like a busted nose
Competitors
I was born to set it off
They wrapped me in a cloth
I grabbed a mic and went on tour
Smash it
Back in school I was a hazard
'Cause I never saw the glass
Man, I just looked past it
Had a passion that burned like battery acid
Peter Parker, bit by some radioactive
(Shake this place in)

(Feel the movement, feel the pressure)
I don't want to maintain, insane, get it up
You always play the blame game, no shame, had enough

"Superhuman"
by After Edmund
Lyrics:

Give me soldier's eyes
And a fearless love
Give me feet to walk
On the dusty road
Give me a brother's hand
And a father's heart
So when danger's near I don't fall apart

I aint no superhuman
Fighting evil away
I aint no superhuman
Saving the day
I wish I was bulletproof
Cause everything's breakin' through

Make me slow to speak
And so strong to hear
That I listen close with a tender ear
And make me color blind
To see in black and white
So when emotions fail
I know wrong from right

I aint no superhuman
Fighting evil away
I aint no superhuman
Saving the day

And when the sky starts falling down
All around (all around)
Where's the hero in this town
To be found (to be found)

Left right left right left right hoo
Left right left right left right hoo
Left right left right left right hoo

[Andy Mineo]
OK, I don't know but I've been told when the saints come marching in we roll
So deep that they can't believe we sold out seats and them CDs
Please don't sleep on the beat I.....beat up these
Still don't get it would you keep up please
We ain't no heroes for sale, if you bought one better keep your receipt
OK I get it I know what they thinking
We some kumbya singing corny Christians keep your distance
Buy a ticket to a concert pay a visit think it's odd
We them blues brothers 116 on a mission from God
I don't think they get it I really think what they gotta do is see it to believe it I wasn't planning on leaving them
Gimmie the microphone with no gimmicks I'm really living it so when they come in and don't you know to get up on the evidence
You ever wanna get it well tell 'em to come and get it
I point 'em to a God and we tell 'em we really wit Him
They thinkin' that I'm tripping cause I'm livin' for more than just rappin' but that's what happens when

When the saints, go marching in

Left right left right left right hoo

[KB]
Oh no, here they go go
Them boys sold out no promo
Tell me give em 2 years it'll go cold
But them words got ate like ocho
Imma keep it 300
Industry probably wanna see us so on
But we in it we in it we live it we give it our God gon do what he want
We favored the aroma is that our God saves
Married to the Rock and I'm faithful
To take these words beyond say
Don't it feel like we famous
But the world will know what are name is
But heaven knows us baby and that book of life is that a list
So I ball I'm so rich and I ain't talking bout cheddar
But I bank on Christ go and talk to the teller
Got the checks that I get I'll be cashing forever
Laugh at the saints that ain't a thing go
They be lacking to pay that thinking straight
Man we ain't lacking a thing rack in the faith
Paid by the blood of the Lamb that is paid
Debt is paid
(Praise to our God)

[Trip Lee]
Now I don't know what you've been told about us bout us
But we gon' love em even though they doubt us doubt us
We just visiting like we some out of towners
Got em asking us how does this God turn ya'll into shouters, like hold up
We don't really think we better, call us perfect no never
But we glad to be call saints cause Paul called us that in the letters
We set apart for the Savior, He's led our hearts to the Maker
Forget the art that we making if we never love our neighbors
You might catch us whistling, marked to the spot straight glistening
Shining cause we filled with Him, you might wanna listen in
Messiah came down then He reigned and He rose
Here yeah they go with this again
That's what makes us love our neighbors
We not just omitting sin
"Bonfire"
by Building 429
Lyrics:

My mama always said I was born for this
And some people wouldn't like that I was different
It never really mattered how hard it would be
Cause she filled me with love and the strength to lead

She said, Oooohaa
That kid's a flame
Said Ooooha
That kid's a flame
He's gonna burn something down if you get in his way

I came to, light it up
Light it up, light it up
If I was born to be a flame
Then I wanna light a bonfire
Light it up, light it up, light it up
If I was born to be a flame
Then I wanna light a bonfire
Let it burn, let it burn
Let it burn, let it burn
I'm gonna burn something down if you get in my way

This is the shout out, this is my voice
Calling all the men, women, girls and boys
The dropouts, the losers, the hurt and the broke
Time to reclaim what the darkness has stole

Marching to the beat of a different drum
We live for the love without counting the cost
If you wanna be free then it's time to go
Lift up your hands so the world will know

We came to light it up
Light it up, light it up
If we were born to be a flame
Then we're gonna light a bonfire
Light it up, light it up, light it up
If we were born to be a flame
Then we're gonna light a bonfire
Let it burn, let it burn
Let it burn, let it burn
We're gonna burn something down if you get in our way

We are not meant to be silent
We are alive just to shine
We are not meant to be quiet
We are the light of the world
We gotta light, light, light it up
"Curse"
by My Epic
Lyrics:

Am I of stone or flesh
To see You slain again
To watch you writhe and bleed
Yet never once weep

I always thought that I would have fought had I been alive
I would have stay to the end, wept at Your feet, and died by Your side

Yet again they beat You down and tear You
Limb from limb
But I keep my peace and my distance

How can I claim to love You
When here Your body lies strewn
I dwell amongst the pieces
And never feel moved
To grieve as my own, the state of it
And give more than just passive dissent

I swore at the start, "oh heart of my heart", we're one in the same
But then I kept You confined, and clearly defined, and now I don't feel a thing

Yet again, they beat You down
And tear You limb from limb
And we wash our hands then
Raise them up in remembrance
"Bless You Lord, leave us be, rest in peace"

You're not a memory we celebrate
You're not a martyr that we venerate
And God forgive us if the church forgets

You are not a corpse and we're not a movement
You're alive and we're the flesh You'll wear till the worlds end

Resurrect

I feel the weight and worth in all of this
That we are Your embodyment

Resurrect theses hearts of stone
To beat with Yours again
For greater works as we
Walk as one in Your likeness
So that men can behold and believe

You are not a corpse and we're not a movement
You're alive and we're the flesh You'll wear till the worlds end
"Never Looking Back"
by Silverline
Lyrics:

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Tonight I'm done pretending I know some things have got to change
I'm tired of feeling nothing knowing I'm the one to blame

Tonight tonight I hate the way my life has been
Tonight tonight I hear you call my name again

Never look never looking back I'm starting over
Never re live your regrets I'm moving forward
It's my life it's my time this world's got nothing on me
It's my life it's my time I'm writing my own ending
Never looking back

My life is all but perfect sometimes I just can't get it right
I wonder if it's worth it when I've wasted so much time

Tonight tonight I hate the way my life has been
Tonight tonight I hear you call my name again

Tonight tonight I hate the way my life has been
Tonight tonight I hear you call my name again

Never look never looking back I'm starting over
Never re live your regrets I'm moving forward
It's my life it's my time this world's got nothing on me
It's my life it's my time I'm writing my own ending
Never looking back

Whoa whoa whoa whoa

I take the second chance and run
One more time I'm moving on

Whoa whoa whoa whoa

And hope will be our guide tonight
Love will make us come alive

Never look never looking back I'm starting over
Never re live your regrets I'm moving forward
It's my life it's my time this world's got nothing on me
It's my life it's my time I'm writing my own ending
Never looking back
Never looking back

I'm starting over I'm moving forward
I'm starting over I'm moving forward
Never looking back
"Shadow Over Me"
by Spoken
Lyrics:

I remember falling I remember hurting
Feeling weightless wounded in these shadows
I abandoned everything cut away the darkness
That had left me searching in the shadows
Face to face with the shadows

And now what's in the past still stays
Ignorance and pride are still the same
All the fear will fall away
The fear of a shadow over me
And now the past defines the change
Ignorance has made me fall from grace
All the fear will fall away
The fear of a shadow over me

I never thought I'd be forced to remember
How you left me searching you left me hurting
Once I refused to see all you've taken
All you've stolen from me you've stolen from me
Face to face with the shadows

I will lift up my eyes to the horizon
And I will lead the way
I'll lift up my eyes to the horizon
And stare into the eyes of grace

"I Am Down"
by DaysEye
Lyrics:

In the shadow of the day
I can feel you're pain so numb
In the midst of all this can you hear me?

As you walk throughout you're life
I am watching you so still
l am waiting for you
Will you choose me?

I am down for life
I wanna give it all to you
I am down for life
I wanna give you everything
There's just one thing here left to say
I am down!

You see it all so dim
You're feeling it so grey
You wonder why you have to take this
I've been there times before
You want this pain no more
God heal me from this, I can't take it

I 've noticed the things you use to say
But now it seems you've fell away
We had the moments of our lives
Not knowing where or whom to run
These dark depictions lead the ones
Oh how have we wasted so much time!
"Far Away"
by Finding Iris
Lyrics:

I'm so far away, I don't know what to do
I'm so far away, I can't find You

Another breath, another day
Another chance to fade away
Another fight to remain in this place

Another day, another breath
Another dose of daily death
Another choice to toil or to rest

I'm so far away, I don't know what to do
I'm so far away, I can't find You
I can't escape
I'm captivated by the things I've crucified

Another day, another me
The mirror lies so honestly
Another glance and I hate the one I see

Another day, another grace
It's in my marrow and in my veins
Here on my own I cannot break these chains

This far away I'm so cold
Ignite a flame inside my bones
This far away I'm so cold
Ignite a flame inside my bones
"Fishers Of Men"
by Newsboys
Lyrics:

Seven billion people on a spinning ball
And they all mean the world to You
It's time like these that I feel so small
There must be somethin' I can do
I played it safe in shallow water
Never had the faith to cross the border
God, I've gotten good at being comfortable
It's time to leave my comfort zone

Cause You said Go! Go!
I will make you fishers of men
Go! Go!
I don't care who or where ya been
So don't 'cha be afraid
To show the world your faith
Cause you're never alone
Just Go! Go!
I will make you fishers of men

And if this life is like a candle
That You gave us to burn
God we wanna light up the night
Instead of livin' with doubt
We should be livin' it out
So let Your love be magnified!

Follow me, yeah
Follow me-e-e
This is the mission
Should you accept it
Your invitation
To get connected
Get connected
Get connected
I will make you!
(Fishers of men!)
"Come Home"
by Relentless Flood
Lyrics:

Why do you run, why do you hide?
Why do you wrestle with your life?
Don't you see that I'm reaching out for you?
Why won't you understand?
I've given all I have to give
Won't you turn and take my hand?
I paid your price

Just come home, my arms are open wide
It's love you can't deny
You will never be alone
When you come home

I can see those scars haunting you
Don't you know there's scars, that I bear too
I am the way, the truth, the life
I am the risen One
Don't ever think you're too far gone

Emmanuel, the Great I Am
Holy, Holy is the Lamb
You paid the price, and gave me life
Now and forever
"Breaking Out"
by Sumerlin
Lyrics:

Breaking Out
If only gravity couldn't keep me down
So I could go to any new place, to a new life
But these eyes have seen enough
These hands are broken, I can not feel you

It's my fault I gave my heart away
With the key I thought she'd be the one to stay here
Don't leave me astray

Cause You keep breaking me out of myself
I want to breathe it's all I need to fight for You
Cause You keep breaking me out of this cell
You're the hope I'm holding
I keep running after You

If only eyes could see this true beauty
So I could go where it leads me. To a new life
It's my fault I threw it all away
With these choices I made knowing I shouldn't stay here
No I shouldn't stay...
It's dark in this place
But I can see a light shine through
I can see a light; I can see Your love

"Cut Me Out"
by A Life Set Apart
Lyrics:

Feel the bass in your chest as the sound begins to nest
As its ingested and imprinted into our mind and when we rest
It comes back like a track on eternal repeat, impossible to delete
Whoa hold the playback
It's a conscious decision to use our and our vision
To satisfy the skin and bone without the proper provision
Reverse your mind and in time you'll fine the cure and design
So your heart stays steady through the brutal refine

Break me down cut me out
Break me down cut me out

Yeah it's time to go get them, take these thoughts out of rhythm
The empty lines that hide behind the unforgettable listen
When it makes its incision, with the tone and the rhythm
There's a one track mission with a poison within them
Understand the condition your in need of revision
Yeah there's a very fine line between desire and division
So make the decision to avoid the collision
Take a stand and fight the fire with the fire of ambition

It's a conscious decision to use our ears and our vision
To satisfy the skin and bone without the proper provision

Reverse your mind and in time you'll fine the cure and design
So your heart stays steady through the brutal refine
"Lion Hearted"
by For A Season
Lyrics:

Fear is a thing of the past
I put my hope in the only thing I know that lasts
I've had my doubts, yeah, I've had the worst of those
They'd surround me like wolves in the night
Like wolves in the night

But I am fearless
I am fearless now

We are the brave ones
We are His daughters and His sons
We have no reason to run
We are the lion hearted

The fear in my heart is put to rest
and what was crippled is now alive and well inside my chest
'cause I've had failures, yeah, I've had the worst of those
They'd surround me like wolves in the night
Like wolves in the night

But I am fearless
I am fearless now

We are the brave ones
We are His daughters and His sons
We have hearts like lions
We have hearts like lions

In the darkness and in the valley
I know that You are with me
"Flash"
by Hearts Of Saints
Lyrics:

I saw my name today on the marquee at the show
Guess I hoped it'd be the thing to fill this empty hole
And all the voices were shouting and calling my name
It was the strangest thing to see
How this place could look so full, yet feel so empty
This is just so temporary

The flash burns, so bright but it won't last very long
And I hope my life means more than that
Oh, The flash burns but it won't last long

Should I stay or leave
I've done my own thing for so long
Everything I thought was right has turned out wrong
And honestly it seems the moments I'm chasing won't matter in the end
Surely there is more than now, with forever waiting
I'm not just temporary

No, I'm not blind anymore
It's Your love that will not fade away
Oh, Let my life be truly Yours
Set my eyes on Your eternal way

The flash burns, so bright but it won't last very long
And I hope my life means more than that
Oh, The flash burns but it won't last long
"I Break Stereotypes"
by HeeSun Lee
Lyrics:

(HeeSun Lee)
When I rap you know I have fun wit it
but I really do it cuz I'm kinda nice wit it
stereotypes rather have me jus doing dishes
but the flow n the skills jus prove different
God gifted, He all on it
change the game in a song, I'm on it
no more judging I disowned it
makes the world look shallow, don't it?
hold it, this the truth I'm grasping
never seen a chick like me I'm asking
flashin signs when you see me passing
hope u get these words I'm blasting
These female rappers rapping like they got no sense in em
I'm here to change it up a bit, I'm hoping I can strengthen them
hoping to put length in them so more ladies will step on in
and make a difference once n for all, tired of us blending in
Through wit it, not doing it
all the haters out there keep booing it
see, I got morals and a little bit of respect for myself won't ruin it
Applaud this movement, what an improvement, how many more will stand up and start doing it?
gotta prepare for the challenges coming, we're one of a kind we're proving it!
Break out my shell, can you tell I'm hype?
this a new day, better get it right
everybody shout wit all ur might
we breakin stereotypes

Breakin stereotypes, breakin stereotypes
I'm not my gender my color or my class
Breakin stereotypes, breakin stereotypes
Get your mind right, daughter get your mind right
Breakin stereotypes, breakin stereotypes
I'm not my gender my color or my class
Breakin stereotypes, breakin stereotypes
Get your mind right, homie get your mind right

(MC Jin)
time to get my mind right
wanna know what I don't like?
man, I feel like I've been stereotyped my whole life!
got me so tight, chip on my shoulder, can you blame me?
tried every single way, threw everything my way but still couldn't break me
its your fault, that my will is so strong
guess I should thank you, huh? while I'm killing this song
feeling these emotions
kill ya pre-conceived notions
you have no idea of who u are approaching
tatt on my neck, cross on my chest
something that u prolly didn't expect
used to be cocky and so full of arrogance, thankful that my daddy keeps me in check
next time you see someone, try n see the whole person
don't be so close minded, hope u find it, soul searching
yo, me n heesun, both coming thru
breakin stereotypes, they ask me who are u?
im a christian, I'm a father, I'm a son, oh, and I rap too

(HeeSun Lee)
i see you looking at me crazy
bout to say something shady
but you dunno the first thing about me
really wanna know, jus come n ask me
im a mother, I'm a daughter, I'm a rapper, and I'm a christian!
this a whole new lifestyle in the making and i'll make it, don't mistake it
gotta face that'll break every stereotype watch me, take it!
no stalling, better be prepared when the Lord start calling
gotta put ur all in, no half steppin, no redirecting, this ur place better learn how to fall in
Read my bio, born in Korea, been quite awhile
now I got this rapping gig that Jesus called me for, He dialed!
never backing down i'll prove this
that an Asian girl won't lose this
see me rock on stages, write these pages, show the world I can do this
And I'm OD'ing on this track, never see me step back
these facts coming thru when I rap
never take no flack
don't take no naps
dont fade to black
see me on the map
everywhere I go make a difference, never gonna stop praying that I fill in the gaps, gaps, gaps!
"The Voices"
by Rebel Revive
Lyrics:

This record's spun before a thousand times
I can tell this isn't you when I look in your eyes
And it breaks my heart in two how this all goes down
And I know it's nothing new, but we could turn it all around

Whoa, Whoa-oh
We'll shake the world, can't stop us
Whoa, Whoa-oh
We are the loudest ones
We are! We are! We are the voices
We are! We are! We are the voices

Take back!
Take back our generation
We've been silent for too long
And I've been growing tired of having to bite my tongue
Break our ties. We'll leave it behind. We'll never look back.
Strength will rise
I know there's hope left in all of this

Whoa, Whoa-oh
We'll shake the world, can't stop us
Whoa, Whoa-oh
We are the loudest ones
We are! We are! We are the voices
We are! We are! We are the voices

And when this world lets me down, I will stand strong. I will hold my ground.
And when this world lets us down. We will stand strong. We will hold our ground.

We'll shake the world. Can't stop us, cause we're the loudest ones!

Whoa, Whoa-oh
We'll shake the world, can't stop us
Whoa, Whoa-oh
We are the loudest ones
We are! We are! We are the voices
We are! We are! We are the voices
"Freakshow"
by Skillet
Lyrics:

Step right up Ladies and Gentlemen
Come and see things your eyes won't believe
Some say they are aliens
Some say they are strangers
Some say they are not of this world
We will not conform to the masses
Whether they scorn or whether they attack us
Come one come all
Welcome to the freaksow!

Welcome to the freakshow
Step up, status quo
Hope you enjoyed the ride
Welcome to the freakshow
We got horns and halos
We ain't afraid and we ain't buying a lie

Eat it, drink it, think it, be it, breathe it
Guess you don't even know who I am
I don't believe it, need it, see it, be it, breed it
Time to make my final stand

Welcome to the freakshow
This is where the freaks go
This is the place that they can never take away
Welcome to the freakshow
We don't ever need though
One to tell us who to be, how to think
I don't care what they believe
Welcome to the freakshow

Welcome to the outcast
Take a step across the tracks
We ain't got nothing to prove
Don't need your smiling face
Don't need your handshake
Because this is my life to live and I ain't living for you

I'm a freak naturally
Just how I want to be
You're a freak just like me

Freakshow, freakshow
The place that they can never take away
Freakshow, freakshow
The place that they can never take away

Welcome to the freakshow
Welcome to the freakshow

"It's Not Too Late"
by Cure For The Fall
Lyrics:

This is a reflection of
The human condition in action
My pride and desire can get me
Anything i need

And I'll fall to my deeds
But won't fall to my knees
I'm the ultimate animal
And I'll get anything I please
Anything I please

It's not too late
And you have never gone too far
As long as you have breath
The He has conquered death
If you'll just accept it

I have a perception that
I've done more good than bad
But how much good is good enough
To cover what I've done?

And I can see the need
But all the pride in me
Tries in vain to add unto
What is already complete
Justified for free

It's not too late
And you have never gone too far
As long as you have breath
The He has conquered death
If you'll just accept Him
And I like where I'm headed
And I'm forgiven for what I've done
It's not too late
To accept His grace

I feel a change inside
I feel it coming through
I see the parts of me
That I never thought would go away
Crumble as you make me new
"Into My Arms"
by Embers In Ashes
Lyrics:

He left
He walked away
With no chance to say goodbye
Without a thought to how it would hurt you
He didn't care how much you cried
He walked away
Never giving a reason
Not even phased by his betrayal
Never concerned with how you felt

Run into my arms
I'm waiting here for you
Run into my arms
I'm always here for you

You left
You walked away
Following in his footsteps
Without a thought to what you'd become
Never concerned with what's inside
You just walked away
While only treating the symptoms
Pretending there's not a problem
Ignoring the cancer within
"Green Heart"
by Flyleaf
Lyrics:

Must cross, destroy, all that you've built
Thieves, break in and steal your green heart
My red heart, turns white as snow
Every new dawn yours could would you know

All you own is gonna burn

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Let's lose it all; buy something beautiful
What next will you sell?
Peace while you sleep

Small green heart
Engraved on a dollar bill
Tell me could it build a whole universe
Can it speak or answer your prayers like you hope it will

You're not just a body of flesh, bones and bread
You are alive, his precious child
And your soul will forever live on

Will forever live on
"Hold Still"
by This City Awaits
Lyrics:

Hold still
I try to look away
This mirror deceiving me
I don't recognize this skin it's foreign
I try to put the blame on your shoulders
and then I realize this hypocrite is myself
yesterday was the worst
But today it doesn't do it justice

You said Hold still
But, I can't breathe in here
You said you'd save me
Where are you now
"I'm Right Here' whispering softly
Listen to me, Will you pass this test with dignity?

I try to accept the truth
Ignorance settles in the more this puzzle it doesn't make sense
You're overwhelming me and still you let the devil play, play with my head

It's getting closer

"To War"
by Bayless
Lyrics:

Soon I will meet my greatest enemy
It knows me well
Here it comes to steal all of my hopes and dreams
And cast a spell
We move to war
Push us back in the dark
Until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line
We're marching out to meet them
We're off to war
Can love still save the souls of men?

Here comes the storm too late to turn away
It knows me well
This dark traitor knows much more than just my name
Our kingdom fell

Can love still save the souls of men?
Lightning breaks the shroud
Death can't hold me
Hear me scream out loud
You won't control me
"It's Not Enough"
by Dustin Kensrue
Lyrics:

Though all the wealth of men was mine to squander
And towers of ivory rose beneath my feet
Were palaces of pleasure mine to wander
The sum of it would leave me incomplete

Though every soul would hold my name in honor
And truest love was always by my side
My praises sung by grateful sons and daughters
My soul would never still be satisfied

It's not enough, it's not enough
I could walk the world forever
Till my shoes were filled with blood
It's not enough, it's not enough

Though I could live for all to lift them higher
Or spend the centuries seeking light within
Though I indulged my every dark desire
Exhausting every avenue of sin

It's not enough, it's not enough
I could walk the world forever
Till my shoes were filled with blood
It's not enough, it's not enough
I could right all wrongs, or ravage
Everything beneath the sun
It's not enough, it's not enough

To make me whole
It's not enough, it never was
Awake my soul
It's not enough, it never was

It's not enough, it's not enough
I could walk the world forever
Till my shoes were filled with blood
It's not enough, it's not enough
I could right all wrongs, or ravage
Everything beneath the sun
It's not enough, it's not enough
Though all would bow to me
Till I could drink my fill of fear and love
It's not enough, it's not enough
"Most Days"
by Everything In Slow Motion
Lyrics:

I made a promise I would never do this again. But here I am
Getting caught was not enough to bring this to an end
I guess I'll never learn
Feeding this addiction, keeps me well
At least most days
Stacking lies to keep everyone from finding out
Because if they only knew who I'd become
A fake, a hypocrite, I'm on the run. I can't do this on my own

Let the hell that follows me, be gone
Bury everything that I've become
I just keep running, but there's nowhere left to hide
So here I am. Here I am I'm letting go of this tonight
I can't do this on my own. Only you can save me
"White Noise"
by Run Kid Run
Lyrics:

Careful now
Keep treading water till I drown
After all, I hate to say it but it's all my fault cause I used to be braver
Now I'm trying to find the will to survive all these anchors
They're pulling me down, pulling me

I don't wanna be a stranger
Cause I don't wanna let you down, again
Maybe I should explain first
Let's start it over let's begin
If only they could hear me when
Its white noise when my voice is calling out
I don't wanna be a stranger
Cause I don't wanna let you down

I tried to be somebody else but that's not me
I'm better off just who I am
But without you I'm dying
I used to be braver
Now I'm trying to find the lion inside of this stranger

There's white noise, there's white noise, in my voice
There's white noise, there's white noise, in my voice
I wanna let it out
But it wasn't my choice, I tried to avoid every urge to destroy the thoughts were drowning out
There's white noise, there's white noise, in my voice
There's white noise, there's white noise, in my voice
I wanna let it out
"Kill Any Excuse"
by The Wedding
Lyrics:

All you wanted was forgiveness
All you want is sonic proof
All the glory of the martyr
With none of the abuse
So are you ready to abandon
Any product of the truth

Set your world on fire
And kill any excuse

Come taste the finest hour
Let's Party ever after
Drink up, oh, you prodigal sons
Come taste the finest hour
We party ever after
Go hard until the night is done

So you want to live forever
Or you just never want to die
All the glory of a good man
But at the lowest price

I've been counting up the cost
I consider everything a loss in light of you

Verse of the Day

April 24, 2014
He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
